Personal History Genetically enhanced against his will, much of Nick Ryder's history as been redacted and classified by Section 31.Holds the role of Chief Operations Officer but no one actually sees him on the bridge during normal duty shifts. Yet seems to manage the ship and department from the shadows. When not on the bridge usually on another shadowy mission, but no one quite knows what it is, except for Admiral V'Pier. There's a history there, but few know it. Recruited into a shadowy organization shortly after his graduation from the Academy - during which he was captured and experimented upon and genetically enhanced by rogue Augment scientists. His loyalty to Starfleet and the Federation runs deep, even though he keeps tabs on everyone.

It's rumored that he has pyrokinetic abilities but some think it's simply technology that he developed. Either way, don't ask him to hold a wax figurine for very long.
Service Record Redacted and Classified

Served aboard the USS Wisconsin and Shuttlecraft Milwaukee before transferring to the Tydirium to assist his long time friend V'Pier with classified projects.
